Seriously?

And people wonder why Nintendo fanboys have such a bad rep?

And a Sim is not a game?

And what is it even a simulation of? Petal Power?

Well, since you're the one who is criticizing it, assumed you had some experience with it, you know, some sort of valid base for your claims. But apparently I was wrong.

Well, now that I've seen all this guys videos, I'd like to give my point of view:

I think this guy is full of sh*t. More sotrage capacity is nice in theory, but the 360 has plenty of storage, and I don't need my games to have 30-hour camaigns and 20 hours worth of sidequests. PS3 is definitely more powerful than the 360, but the system with the best graphics and most memory doesn't necessarily win. The original Xbox had more memory and a far better graphics pocessor than the PS2, but were it's game necessarily better? Hell no.

Sure, AA Batteries for the controllers are annoying, but I do the same thng with the Wii, and it doesn't bother me (much), don't care about Bluetooth, and the Sixaxis is a joke. I seroiusly couldn't care less about Linux, and I'm sure a lot of other people don't either. My Wii has an internet browser, so I don't care that the 360 doesn't have one, (even though it does seem foolish that a console made from a company that specializes in computers and pides itself on it's online features doesn't have a freakin' internet browser.). I will agree that having to buy a seperate wireles adaptor for $100 is bull, but even then the system is still cheaper than a PS3.

Most of the exclusives he listed I either never heard of, woulnd up on other systems (Castlevania on 360, Jak & Daxter on PS2/PSP), or tuned out t be flops (Cross Edge). There's a few PS3 games I really want that I'm gonna miss out on (GoW III, Resistance, and Fat Princess being the main ones), but I'm perfectly content with the exclusives I get on 360. His arguments about most 360 games coming to PC is also invalid in my case. My Vista can't even handle Bioshock (the Steam version, anyway), so how could it possibly handle games like Mass Effect and Gears of War?

And another thing I can live without is that Folding @ Home feature. Even though he swears to god that it's not a worthless feature, it still looks pretty worthless to me. The fact that it help cancer (so he says) is great and all, but I don't buy my video game systems for medical benefits.

There's 4 reasons I decided to get a 360:
1. XBLA
2. Games like Gears, Dead Rising, and Banjo Kazooie
3. Low Price
4. Getting to play online with my friends

PSN's selection is definitely NOT better than XBLA's. As much as people complain about XBL's monthly fee, it's looks totally worth it (haven't gotten to use it yet since I still ned that wireless adaptor). Not only do you get the best selection of download games and DLC available, but you have the most widely-used online play in the world, and you also get cool features such as Netflix. Oh, an I'm sure the 360 COULD handle Flower, but since it's a game about controlling flower petals flying in the air, I won't miss it too much.

Sorry about the rant, but this guy really grinded my gears. He comes off as little more than a raving fanboy with a total bias towards his console of choice. I'm happy I got a 360, and it should keep me happy as my sole next-gen console for the reamains of this generation (at least until early '10, where I break down and buy one for GoW III. :P).

Wow! One game, ONE GAME uses the Sixaxis properly. Seal your doors Wii fans, the Sixaxis is taking over! :rolleyes:

Well, 4 games, to my knowledge: Motorstorm(I think), Flow, Flowers, and Wipeout HD all controlled great with the SixAxis. Some other games used it fairly well, but I won't comment on them, since I have yet to play any PS3 games outside of in-store Kiosks.

It's not even about that though.

Quantity doesn't matter, Wii games are basically required to incorporate motion controls in some way.

It's about the games that control great. Flower has shown, when done right, the Sixaxis can provide a better controlling experience than all Wii games that just use the Wii remote.

The Sixaxis is actually more accurate motion wise than the Wii remote when it's without its little buddy, Motion Plus.

Wii fans seem to think the Wii remote alone is great and all and Sixaxis is flat out terrible. That's not true at all.

Motorstorm and Wipeout may work decently with the Sixaxis, but I'm positive that they would control better traditionally. And FlOw is barely a game from what I heard. Don't you just randomly wander around and eat bugs or whatever the whole time with zero challenge?

Many games have attempted to add Sixaxis support, with mixed results. Some managed to use it functionally, while other have been disasterous. But almost all of them were better-controlled with traditional controls.

As far as things it's not even about are concerned, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and inFamous both made use of the Sixaxis controls in very nice ways, for attacks that wouldn't really have worked well any other way. Yes, I know that isn't the point; just throwing it out there. :)

Yes, Flower is really good. I was surprised by how much I liked it, to be honest. The sense of effortless flight in the game is truly superb, though! :D

Actually, it is very much a game, with a goal, a challenge, a beginning, and an end. You could try the PC version if you need a better understanding of how the game works. It's not as good as the PSN version, but it's still pretty interesting.

I've only played a demo of Rachet and Clank Future so I can't really judge motion controls. In general, all motion control sucks unless done properly. That includes motionplus and even Natal. There will always be poor programmers.
As for Sony themselves, I always liked their 1st/2nd party fair. They're like the old Sega when it comes to that.

I have several things to say on PS3 vs Wii.
1.I wish Wii had demos of WII games.
2.The remote is kinda gimicky(but I still love it)
3.Wiiware should be way better than it already is.

Other people are like Slinkys. They have no purpose whatsoever, but are amusing as crap to see fall down stairs.

I do like the 360 controller A LOT better than the Playstation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc. controller, but that and Perfect Dark aside, there is nothing else I'd prefer on the 360 over the PS3
